Міндовкілля вже похвалилося, що оцінка наближеності нашого законодавства до європейського в частині охорони довкілля тепер становить два бали замість одного. За п’ятибальною шкалою.
During the war Ukrainian Nature Conservation Group works to keep Ukraine’s natural protected areas functional and support their employees.
One-third of the protected areas and sites, including two biosphere reserves, are currently located in the zones of active hostilities, occupation and humanitarian crisis. The government support to these territories and their employees is now limited due to the ban on transferring the budgetary funds to temporarily occupied territories and extensive bureaucratic procedures. The national parks and reserves have lost the income from tourism, which they are so heavily dependent on. So at present such protected areas have lost their supply and require our aid.
We address our efforts to:
- Implementing possible measures to preserve the most valuable natural ecosystems and objects.
Restoring the critical infrastructure of nature reserves damaged by the war.
Providing aid to the staff of nature reserves who have lost their homes, who are in the zone of active hostilities, who require food, water, medicines, etc.
Supporting vital needs to run organizations that manage protected areas.
